From Wanaka, first stop is Cromwell. This is orchard country, with apples, peaches, pears, plums and cherries all grown in abundance. Take a few minutes at one of the local fruit stands for some of the local fruit ice cream. Continue from Cromwell along the scenic, desert route alongside the Kawarau River toward Queenstown, passing the wineries of the Gibbston Valley and Kawarau Bungy. Bypassing Queenstown, the route to Te Anau goes south alongside Lake Wakatipu. Te Anau sits in a lush position between farmland and the mountains of Fiordland. Explore the Kepler track, join a glow worm tour, take a scenic flight or perhaps make the visit to nearby lake Manapouri.
